The 2009/10 financial year has seen difficult conditions due to the international economic crises, so it is extremely pleasing that STEMMER IMAGING was able to come through this period without any consequences for personnel such as reduced working hours or redundancies. By keeping the full workforce of more than 130 employees and therefore guaranteeing no loss of expertise, the company is well set for the emerging recovery in international markets.
STEMMER IMAGING works with subsidiaries in Germany, United Kingdom, France and Switzerland. The German headquarters was able to achieve sales of 21.3 million euro and thus exceeded its target. With that result, the company´s percentage growth was better than the German market average. Far above the average was the French subsidiary, STEMMER IMAGING S.A.S., which reached sales of 5.9 million euro, an increase of 16.8 percent compared to the year before.
"I'm extremely delighted that STEMMER IMAGING was able to finish the difficult financial year without any loss of personnel", comments Managing Director Christof Zollitsch. "The business progress, especially since the beginning of 2010, gives me a very optimistic view of the future where we will continue to put as much effort as possible into our goal: To help our customers in the best possible way to solve their imaging tasks."
STEMMER IMAGING has been leading the machine vision market since 1987. It is Europe's largest technology provider in this field. In 1997 STEMMER IMAGING presented Common Vision Blox (CVB), a powerful programming library for fast and reliable development and implementation of vision solutions, which has been deployed successfully throughout the world in more than 40,000 imaging applications in various industries.
